asked the Secretary of State for Defence if he will make a statement concerning the role of 3 Commando Brigade.

Mr. Lee

I refer the hon. Member to the Statement on the Defence Estimates 1985 Vol. I (Cmnd. 9430—I), paragraph 430, in which the role within NATO of 3 Commando Brigade Royal Marines is set out. The brigade is also, of course, available for national tasks.
